It is not the result of any training since the vast majority of males are untrainable (if he was trainable your dishwasher would be emptied within 2 mins of completing the wash)

All of our actions are predicated on the anticipated reward for completing said action (food, beer, sex [not necessarily in that order]) or the avoidance of pain and suffering (nag, nag, nag, ad nauseum). Pretty much just conditioned responses to ensure our survival with respect to the fairer sex.

Hi GaCat. I can't wait to hear more about your trip. I wish I could be there when you all have the Maelstrom Meet.

OMGyroscopes! She thinks I am important! Well, I am famous in very small circles.

I am really looking forward to this trip report. Because
1. I like to read. Polysyllables do not create trepidation in my psyche. (Big words don't scare me).
2. I love gushing over kidcakes. Every kid should be gushed over.
3. It will be like a fun house with all sorts of trip reporters reporting on the same events from different points of view.

Lead on Georgia!

Great, great start. I love your writing, big words and all. And I love your kids. They are just tooooooo cute! And your photographic skills are almost as impressive as your sewing skills.

I also can't wait to "meet", through your stories, Grammy and NeatKid. Then, of course, eventually, to meet ALL of you in person! Boost and my DH share a little bit of terror at the impending invasion of cyber buddies. If necessary, we can let them go off by themselves to avoid overload, k?

So........let the pre-trip anticipation begin (yeah, like it didn't begin about six months ago, maybe more)! Look forward to more........................

I ain't skeered of no big words, neither, SesquipedalianKitty!!! Bring 'em on!

Pronunciation: "ses-kw&-p&-'dAl-y&n
Function: adjective
Etymology: Latin sesquipedalis, literally, a foot and a half long, from sesqui- + ped-, pes foot -- more at FOOT
1 : having many syllables : LONG <sesquipedalian terms>
2 : given to or characterized by the use of long words <a sesquipedalian television commentator>

Give some of the male Maelstromers a little competition in the big and obscure word department! Should be entertaining . . .

I am so looking forward to your reporting and hearing about your little ones' adventures. Hope your hubby comes around after meeting some of your fellow Vikings.

Thanks to everyone for reading this, and everything. I will (hopefully) be adding some backstories so that you might become further acquainted with the characters before we leave.
Sher ~ who is first, of course! I can't wait to experience this crazy ride with you!
JamisweetJami~ dear friend, questioned answered, yes?
UM ~ I surely hope that I will be reading your TR before I leave!
PPG ~ newlymarriedwonderfullyhappygirl! I wish you could be there . . . (my bottom lip is stuck out, frowny face)
lookingforward ~ I'm looking forward to it to. While I have many special things planned, I hope for some pixie dust moments. It's all good . . .
horseysweetponybaby~I can't wait to share my family with you as you have shared with us. What a special person you are!
offwego ~ let's not talk about those big numbers, 'kay? (burying head in sand)
Kimmie ~ shhhhhh. I'm a mean mommy too, really!
Marita ~ local girl! can't wait to meet you!
NM ~ thank you!
NAB ~ enjoying your report as well!
Steph ~ pictures shall be forthcoming of the t-shirts!
JW ~ I don't care what you call it. I only care that I get my way. That's what's important!
Erinella ~ we all wish you could be there too! Hope you don't float away this weekend!
Twinkie ~ glad to have you along for the ride!
Dog ~ good man. I need you along as a walking wine dictionary. I don't know how to pick and don't always trust the waiter to really get it right. For some reason . . .
Ash ~ many pictures to follow (I hope)!
Haley ~ can't wait to hear about YOUR commando trip!
Grammy ~ yes, we really do call her Grammy. Always. Just like Horsey's grammy! Mine is also a Grammy J!
Minnie Moo ~ a new word! I can't believe I didn't know that one. Going into the hard drive of my brain!
And UM ~ I agree. That's funny, I don't care who you are!

To everyone who mentioned my bee-yoo-tee-ful chill'uns. I agree. But I am understandably biased, and proud. So, you will probably be inflicted with many many pictures of them. And their costumes. And smiles. And laughter.

Because, really, that's what this trip is all about!

GA- Most excellent start!

And then there are the Vikings. Which I can't wait to meet. A couple of whom I have already met. All of whom Boost is a-feared.
Right back at you girlfriend!!

Looking forward to getting to know you better. Sharing "pulled pork" at Sonny's was a great start, but meeting again at Disney will be the "cat's meow".....so to speak!

Kitty~ Looking forward to reading all about your trip. Just wish I could have made it to the meet too... I have a feeling that this series of "Viking" trip reports is going to bigger than the finale of Seinfeld.
